Located on Grand Canyon's South Rim, Mohave Point offers beautiful panoramas of terraced cliffs that encircle the Abyss, sandstone plateaus, and meandering Colorado River. One of nine lookout points along the rim, ideal for watching sunset and sunrise, this spot actually consists of several individual overlooks and is never crowded. If you look directly below the point, you'll see a red sandstone mesa with jagged edges resembling alligator's horny scales. The site is accessible from scenic Hermit Road by foot, bicycle, and free shuttle bus.

Mohave Point Reviews
I was disapointed simply because i decided to come to this view point first and I soon realized it was one of the best ones. Epic 250 degrees view point which you can see very far in the distance... more »
We stopped here to view the sunset on the Park's Hermit's Rest sunset tour. Despite bitter cold and a biting wind, it was still an amazing experience. We're not sure how one can rate these... more »
We had a wonderful time so nice and clean.. the stuff is very friendly and helpful. Fantastic, stunning .
We were caught in a thunderstorm here and it was so awesome! The view of the wall of water coming our way was amazing. The lightening cracked across the sky a few times and that will get your attention! They ended up diverting extra buses out toward Hermets Rest to evacuate everyone. We finally made it onto the 5th bus after sheltering under a low tree. Quite the adventure!!
